Abstract: The purpose of this research was to determine the nature and importance of excellent feminine leadership. Characteristics which were common to excellent leaders were examined both from educational literature and from the lives of the graduates of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro-Asheville Program. Patterns of leadership behaviors were determined. The study also found the occupational changes which have occurred in the lives of the graduates of the first two cohorts. The influence of the doctoral program on the personal and professional lives has been studied. Further influence of the program on the graduates' philosophy and the methods they employ as they approach administrative tasks were noted. Causes which have led to occupational changes have also been determined.
